"Danny & Mick"
Tiger Aspect Kids & Family, part of Banijay Kids & Family, announced that popular live action children’s comedy series “Danny & Mick” will return to CBBC and BBC iPlayer for a fifth series later this year. Starring real life half-brothers Danny Adams and Mick Potts, who have been entertaining live audiences for years in the North East of England, “Danny & Mick” has proved hugely popular with audiences since its launch in 2018. The series is currently filming in the North East.
The physical comedy show follows the antics of Danny and his very big little brother Mick, and in this series, they have moved to a new leisure centre as Danny blew up the last one. But to their surprise, their old boss Joy, played by Nina Wadia, is back to keep them in check. Danny and Mick are continuing to cause mayhem and mess, with some bigger stunts and epic silly stories including a high-wire act, an exploding sauna, cutting a caravan in half and the use of a human cannon to dust the ceiling of the sports hall.
“I love ‘Danny & Mick’ and it is a joy to be getting messy once again with the leisure centre legends for a brand-new series,” said Tom Beattie, Managing Director at Tiger Aspect Kids & Family. “Silliness and slapstick is what we do best, and we are really looking forward to doing more of that for CBBC in this new series,” Danny Adams and Mick Potts added.
The series was commissioned by Sarah Muller, BBC Children’s Head of Commissioning and Acquisitions 7+, and will be executive produced by Tom Beattie for Tiger Aspect Kids & Family, and Melissa Hardinge for CBBC. The series is head written by Ciaran Murtagh and Andrew Barnett Jones, produced by Helen Burt, and directed by Jonathan Gershfield. “Danny & Mick” is distributed by Zodiak Kids & Family Distribution.
